things you'll need:
Shut down the computer.
Remove the screws on the back of the case and remove the side panel.
Unplug the IDE cable running from the motherboard to the hard drive from its port on the motherboard.
Consult your motherboard manual to determine the location of the connector for your secondary IDE channel.
Plug the drive into the other channel.
Close up the computer and restart it. This might allow the drive to be detected, if the problem was with the motherboard and not the drive itself.
Open "Start" and type "cmd" into the "Search" box. Press "Enter."
Type "chkdsk x: /f" and press "Enter." Replace "x" with the letter of the hard drive. This will scan the drive for problems and repair errors on the drive
